Lord, what Bull Crap you talking

My argument is simple

A-Team should represent those who are moving up from Domestic and moving down from Senior Team

It's an opportunity for both

Kyle, Cummins failed in England

Reifer, Hety warmed the benches

Hence those are my 4 selections

"What's the problem with Leon Johnson, Beaton, Kyle Hope and others, that was part of the last A team squad?"

1) Leon Johnson didn't play in last year's 'A' team tour of Sri Lanka.

2) Ronsford Beaton will be playing for Dhaka in the BPL in November , towards the end of when these "Tests" take place. Same for Lil Bravo and Evin Lewis. Big Bravo will be playing T20s in South Africa at this time.

3) Are the selectors saying Kyle Hope will be in the Test squad for the tour of Zimbabwe? Same for Shimron Hetmyer? And Raymon Reifer?

4) Stating the obvious - Kemar Roach promoted back to the Test side.

5) Moti Kanhai and Delorn Johnson dropped. Harsh?

Last year's 'A' team stats

A) Vishal Singh demoted back the 'A' team.

B) Montcin Hodge, Jahmar Hamilton, Sunil Ambris, Yannick Cariah and Sheldon Cottrell rewarded for a good 2016-17 PCL.

C) Are the selectors hoping to make a Michael Holding out of Oshane Thomas and Reynard Leveridge?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think we had an 'A' team touring another country since October of last year....

So after whinging that bootlickers should not be on a WI team they should now placed A teams?

Let me get this right. They're not good enough for WI selection but they can be one step from the senior team????

You trying to appease bajans??? big grin

Some of these players did absolutely nothing in the 4day comp. Are you not outraged? big grin

Looks like the selectors will be sticking with the same team later in the year.

Otherwise Dowrich should definitely be given a drop to the A team.

I can't wait to see certain individuals on this MB catch a fit. big grin

Isn't that Transparent and Fair?
They have just failed at Senior Level.
and in my approach, instead of sending them to wilderness, let them play at A-level and prove their worth.

Let me get this right. They're not good enough for WI selection but they can be one step from the senior team????


GET THIS:
They are both ONE STEP from being promoted to the Senior Team and ALSO one step from being demoted to the Regional TEAM.

It's an EQUAL CHANCE!!
and its FAIR AND SQUARE!!

You trying to appease bajans???


AS USUAL A BOOT LICKER, CANT THINK BEYOND LICKING BOOTS.

BROTHER, LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO A WORLD, WHERE THERE ARE PEOPLE, WHO WORK ON PRINCIPLES.

and this is EXACTLY THAT.

THE SAME OPPORTUNITY, THE SAME RULES FOR EVERYONE

NO ONE IS FAVORED AND NO IS BIASED AGAINST.

But i don't expect you to get that, BOOT LICKER! big grin

Dowrich is one player, who shouldn't be burdened with WK anymore.

A specialist WK should play at all times in Test Cricket.

Dowrich needs to make the team as a batsmen, and the guy is clearly out of form.

So either he should be part of the A-team setup, or even better for him, work on his game in regionals first.

John Campbell
Hetmyer (was given 2 tests, sat out the Pom tour, he is the clear next in line)
Kyle Hope (was given 3 Tests in England, got exposed, he needs to be moved to A-TEAM)
Vishaul Singh (captain)
Sunil Ambris
Raymon Reifer (was a tourist on the Pom Tour, he needs to be moved to A-TEAM)
Hamilton (wk)
Cornwall
Cummins (again was on Pom tour, got exposed, he needs to be moved to A-TEAM)
Jacobs
Cottrell

Agree with everything above except the Hetmyer bit.

No cause to worry about Hetmyer. From all reliable sources, Shia Hope and Hetmyer will be the face of CWI for a long time.

Not being named to the A team squad should not be a cause of concern.

My reason for Hetmyer to play the A-Team test, is to get some game time.

Without a doubt, Hetmyer should open with KB in the next Test Match.

Powell should be said good bye.

This should be the Senior Team in the next Test:

THREE CHANGES

KB
Hetmyer
Lil Bravo
Shai Hope
Chase
Blackwood
Ramdin (wk)
Jason Cappo
Bishoo
Roach
Gabriel

I have no real problem with squad, great to see the two JA potentially fiery pace bowlers in the mix, most proactive move by CWI in a long time.

Where is Odean Smith?

It is a strange selection, CB and his group has out live their usefulness.
This is a platform for the continuation of players.
What's the problem with Leon Johnson, Beaton, Kyle Hope and others, that was part of the last A team squad?

Kyle Hope is on the test team. Beaton is slated for T20. Looks like they finish with Leon

In reply to thefacts... well I would move those coming down from test to FC ... have to work to get a look in another A team set up. Let the A team be the feeder as Browne noted. Yes, there will be exceptions who may go straight to test from FC, but it should not be the norm. Now if only we could open up some academies in each territory.

I have never picked a team or advocate for a Bajan player, what I said is that Shai is the real deal.

why should Leon Johnson be A team captain?
Did Brooke not captain the last A team?


Johnson was on International duty, thats why Brooks was made captain, you dont just discard youngsters, so early in their career.
Johnson is Guyana captain, he should be the A team captain.
Browne and his team, not consistence when selecting players.

They took Leveridge on d A team tour he shat himself and bruk down.
Came in FC season and couldn't get a wicket yet they pick him again.
I repeat 6 wickets in 8 FC innings.

If Kope, Hety and Reifer in the Test team then that explains their otherwise surprising exclusion.

Beaton did not play a match in the 4day season, his 4day stats are horrible compared to our FC bowlers.

I see a man puttting Cariah to open and he have him not even as a sure pick, well Cariah being the leading run scorer in the FC season should be one of the first names in there and he should be slotted in the middle order where he scored his runs.

Campbell
Hodge
Brooks
Cariah
Singh
Ambris
Hamilton
Cornwall
Joseph
Cotterell
Thomas

Jacobs unfortunate to be left out, while Campbell is the most drop-able batsman.

Do your post make sense to you.If Johnson was away on international duties, he could not be captain, is Johnson entitled.

Brooks batted, fielded and captained well, you are now going to penalized Brooks for Johnson failures.

They already have Thomas there, if they wanted another could've well gone with Smith, both are 20 or thereabouts unlike Leveridge who is 27.

They already picked Leveridge and he came back and did squat, so unless they have been working with him from the end of the PCL to now, it is pure bull to select him now.

I get that selectors are trying to encourage and reward performance in the regional 4 day (PCL) competition

But there are certain "talents" ...particularly batsmen that need to be in the mix IMO. You can't just give up on players after a relatively short run. In some cases...no run at all. West Indies cricket needs batsmen.

They persisted with Shai Hope and that eventually bore fruit in England. Why not others?

Johnson Charles
Brandon King
Leon Johnson
Jonathan Carter


If you as a selector TRULY believe these guys have the goods to eventually succeed at international level....you have to give them every opportunity to succeed.


Johnson Charles cannot just be discarded and considered to be a waste of time after he showed that he can more than compete with some of the best in international cricket. It's bordering obscene.

You can't just go on numbers in the regional competition. Otherwise, anyone can be a selector. We've seen Johnson Charles, Leon Johnson and Jonathan Carter in action in the international arena. There is something there. Brandon King is a really good young talent. Why not encourage him?

Anyway....
